    Plenty of links. I am not sure what to make of this, but do find it interesting. I'll re-read it in the morning, I'm too tired of counting marshmellow hamsters or something:

    Cowboys (and Texans in general) do tend to shoot from the hip.

    Most of the time we hit what we're aiming at.

    Gimme a break. This is a country, not a state. We shouldn't be giving people lucrative and powerful positions because they appeal to local color. They should be the best person for the job, not homeboys (or girls).

    Don't get me wrong....I have very serious reservations about this nomination.

    Probably more concern than I have had over ANY of President Bush's decisions since he was elected. But I am willing to listen to the confirmation hearing with an open mind....not that any of us get a vote anyway.

    I was just responding to the article. The cowboy mentality is alive and well down here, I assure you.
